How I Teach Math

Tips on Teaching Math I often get asked the question of how I teach math. One of the most frustrating parts of homeschooling or even supplementing some of your child’s education is seeing your child struggling with formal studies. They can feel discouraged or disengaged at times and all you want to do is make it an easier process for them. I’ve been able to try different products, games, and tactics over the course of many years and I’m happy to share with you what has truly helped our children.

Moon Phase Craft

Moon Phase Craft Learning science is always fun around here. Astronomy is our oldest son’s absolute favorite subject to learn.

I hope to create the same memories by being intestinal with our homeschool years. We love baking together but since we baked so many cookies and sweet treats over the Christmas season, we decided to make natural play dough in the kitchen instead. We made three different colors to go along with the book we read. Below I’ve listed the ingredients and direct

A New Year

The kids and I thought of 10 words we want our home and homeschool to look like in 2020. I couldn't pick just one. I know I need to but I'm going to take the next few weeks and really pray about what each item here looks like and how we can implement them all. Now that we're coming out of the newborn phase, we're going to focus more on accomplishing some goal, all the while still taking things slow and allowing them to be little. . Here are our words: 1. Intention Every activity, book and lesson will be made with intention for our children. I work too hard on keeping them "busy" and not allowing my eyes to focus on doing all of these things with intention. 2. Less We want to do more with l
